SFU has launched a new Green Pages environmental sustainability web portal at www.sfu.ca/green to serve as a one-stop cyber hub where faculty, staff, students, media and the public can learn about all things green at the university.

"SFU is a leader among Canadian universities for both the extent and quality of its environmental programs and research and its commitment to environmental sustainability at all three of its campuses," says Don MacLachlan, director of public affairs and media relations (PAMR).

"We have a lot of excellent green stories to tell and this website will help us do that in a more accessible and effective manner."

The Green Pages site includes the latest university press releases and features stories from SFU News covering the gamut of green initiatives and research topics ranging from waste management, climate change, recycling and energy conservation to water and air quality and sustainable resource management.

"Our focus was to create a site with easy access to a broad overview of what’s green at SFU and that pulls together green content published elsewhere by PAMR with one click of a mouse," says PAMR web strategist Annette de Vries, who built the portal.

The site also includes links to green SFU programs and courses and a growing list of faculty members, students and alumni who are experts in dozens of environmentally related fields of research.

In addition, there are ideas on how to be greener at the office and at home, with suggestions for reducing water and energy consumption.

The site links to the SFU Sustainability portal, a university-wide community site maintained by the Sustainability Advisory Committee made up of faculty, staff and students.
